Note: These instructions are for instructors using Pivot Interactives prior to the creation of the Pivot Interactives store in June 2021. If you're a new user, please see these instructions instead for how to create a Student Pay License.
Instructors can create classes where students join by paying for their own access, either by paying directly with a credit card or using an access code purchased from your institution's book store.
At least 10 students must purchase access for your account to become active.
To create a student-pay course, you'll need to have a teacher account on Pivot Interactives. If you don't have a teacher account, you can request a free account here.
Once you have an account, log in and create a new class by going to My Classes and clicking the "+ Add Class" button:
Configure the class by giving it a name and selecting the payment type and institution level:
Once your new class is created, you can see and edit the class by clicking on the class title from the My Classes page, then selecting "View Class & Roster."
To invite students to join the class, give them the eight-character Class Key or the Join Link:
When students join the class, they will be prompted to create an account and to:
enter a credit card number to pay for access to your course
enter an access code they purchased from your institution's bookstore
Either option will allow the student to join the class and access the instructor's materials.
As an instructor, you'll need a minimum of 10 students to join the class within the first 30 days of creating the course; otherwise, the class content will not be visible to the students.
